    "I am one of the instant fans of Queen and Freddie Mercury after watching Bohemian Rhapsody where Rami Malek performed very well! And after watching Queen's performance on Live Aid on Wembley, I must say Malek might be Freddie's long lost son. LOL 😂"

    "I've been a fan of Queen since I was a child because my father would always play their songs on our stereo. I was also able to attend this concert because we were at London at the time. So happy that Freddie Mercury and his band got to have their own movie. ♥"

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that Queen's iconic performance at the 1985 Live Aid benefit concert at Wembley Stadium in London left a deep impression not only on the millions that watched the show, but also on the band members themselves? In the months leading to the benefit concert for the famine-stricken Ethiopia, Queen frontman Freddie Mercury said they were "forming a sort of a rut" and "needed to be away from each other" after hitting a plateau in creativity and making some controversial decisions including performing in apartheid-era South Africa. But when they earned a spot in the star-studded bill of Live Aid concert (which included big names like David Bowie and Paul McCartney), all sorts of internal problems and external pressures were forgotten as their momentous 17-minute performance echoed throughout the 1.9 billion people that watched the show live in London or at home in television. With songs like "We Will Rock You" and "Bohemian Rhapsody", the band played in perfect harmony with the 72,000-strong crowd so much that Elton John, who performed after Queen, told the band: "You bastards, you stole the show!". After that enlivening show, Queen became one of the most in-demand bands that drummer Roger Taylor believed they were "probably the best live band in the world at the moment."

The Live Aid performance was so iconic that the makers of Bohemian Rhapsody (starring Rami Malek as Mercury), the biopic about Mercury and Queen, made sure the scene was perfect as possible and shot that sequence first. Coincidentally, the scene served as the glue that helped making the movie go smoother. Cinematographer Newton Sigel said that taping the Live Aid performance "allowed the cast to come together early and create their chemistry". "I remember watching them rehearse three days before the shoot, they didn't know each other and those four guys really jelled, just like a rock'n'roll band would." No wonder people are trying to find sources to watch Bohemian Rhapsody online as it is no longer available in movie theatres.
